 Our top tips to help you choose the right company


  • Never sign a quotation – Ask why it is necessary to sign a quotation. This is more than likely a ploy to get you to sign a legally-binding contract.
  •  Make sure your guarantee is for a period of fifteen years and that it is fully comprehensive and transferable.
  •  Make sure your fascia boards are BBA approved and insist on seeing the certificate.
  •  Make sure you see the company’s public liability insurance certificate.
  • Make sure the company is a member of the Trusted Traders scheme.
  •  It is essential to make sure that the materials are replaced and simply not over-clad. Make sure you get this in writing.
  • If you feel under any pressure to sign an order when a salesman is in your home just thank him for his time, be firm, and tell him you will be in touch when you have had time to think it over.
  • If he does not leave just threaten to call the police.
  • Ask to see locally installed work that the company has done.
  •  If you still can’t decide which company to use, ask your friends and family who they would recommend.
  • If you are fed up of being pestered at meal times or when you want to relax remember there is the Telephone Preference Service  0845-070-0707. The Telephone Preference Service can fine offenders £5000, so this is an effective deterrent.
